Self adhesive grinding papers

Self adhesive consumables can be used in 3 different ways

Option 1: The self adhesive disc can be fixed directly to the plate.

Option 2: The Kemtak disc is used with Bramet self adhesive grinding papers. It can be mounted onto the machine platen or onto the KMS disc if it is being used with a magentic platen. The plastic barrier film on the Bramet grips the Kemtak non-skid surface so that the adhesive is not used. This makes it faster and cleaner when changing from one grit size to another (Fig 1).
